We had just barely learned to play our instruments before we embarked on our recording careers 30 years ago in the spring of 1983 at age 13. We had just seen KISS live for the first time on February 19th. The next month, Minor 2049er was formed. The first tape was completed and “officially released” (to no one) on April 2, 1983. We wrote songs about the girls we had crushes on. We wrote songs with nonsensical lyrics, a la “I Am The Walrus”. Occasionally, we would go completely off the rails and write a song about James Watt (Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of the Interior) or Charles Manson. We lasted almost a full year, with the final 7th release completed February 16, 1984. Soon after, we gained a bass player, abandoned all our original songs, changed our name, and concentrated on becoming a rockin’ teenage metal cover band. Here, 30 years later, are some re-recordings of some of our favorite Minor 2049er songs.

"Mr. Stedman's music is both goofy and intelligent, a rare blend indeed. Wildly inventive and fun. Yet ANOTHER example of the value of 'home-tapers'. " - Baby Sue Music Review
